Just wanted to say a big thank you to Nina for coming out to M.E.T. Kellyville today to lead us through the Geology Rocks and Hot and Cold programmes. It was very professionally run and Nina was very patient with the many requests of the students. A huge thank you once again, we look forward to running more workshops in the future.
